Alex Gertschen: “Scherben bringen kein Glück. Konjunkturen und Strukturen der Gewalt in Mexiko” (Free admission, in German)

This presentation thematizes the violence in Mexico, going beyond the current “drug war” and its arenas, both geographically and temporally. This is because the social phenomenon of violence is simultaneously a historical phenomenon, which continues to shape everyday life in much of Latin America.

Alex Gertschen, born in 1979 in Bern, works as a journalist and researcher, specializing in Latin America. Holding a doctorate in history, he worked from 2007 to 2011 in Mexico City, as a correspondent for the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. He lives with his family in Bern.
